I love LibraryThing!! However, as a grad student, I have a few ideas that would make this service phenomenal. I would love to see library thing move beyond books and also support journal articles, how cool would that be? Of course, this change would involve adding few more fields, such as journal, volume, etc. Many scholars use bibliography tools such as endnote. So developing an "export library to endnote function" would be ideal, particularly if you could export a specific portion of our library. I have already experimented with this, and have found that you can tweak the exported excel file and import it into endnote (all it requires is renaming some fields, deleting others, and adding a field called reference type (*book). To create an academic reference, all we are missing is place of publication. I'd also like to push to integrate libarything with my school's library search page. Does anyone else have similar needs? I also published this message on the Recommend Site Improvements list.
What I would really like is being able to add journal volumes.
I'll have to think about what sort of thing I would like.
I was using EndNote 8.0 for Mac, if that makes a difference (maybe the PC version is better?). It and Word had a shaky relationship. Try a few different programs (some of them are free) and see which you like best-- EndNote is definitely not the only game in town.
